"You know, it's time we grow old and do some shit." -Broken Social Scene, "Lover's Spit" "Everybody wants to leave something behind them, some impression some mark upon the world. Then you think you left a mark on the world if you just get through it and a few people remember your name. You don't have to bend the whole world. I think it's better to just enjoy it- pay your dues and enjoy it."- Dorian Corey, "Paris is Burning" "I had the misfortune to be nourished by the dreams and visions of great Americans—the poets and seers. Some other breed of man has won out. This world which is in the making fills me with dread. I have seen it germinate; I can read it like a blue-print. It is not a world I want to live in. It is a world suited for monomaniacs obsessed with the idea of progress—a false progress, a progress which stinks. It is a world cluttered with useless objects which men and women, in order to be exploited and degraded, are taught to regard as useful. The dreamer whose dreams are non-utilitarian has no place in this world. Whatever does not lend itself to being bought and sold, whether in the realm of things, ideas, principles, dreams or hopes, is debarred. In this world the poet is anathema, the thinker a fool, the artist an escapist, the man of vision a criminal." —Henry Miller, The Air-Conditioned Nightmare (1945) "We're both Gemini vegetarians." "Is Josh giving you shit because he's going through his post-adolescent idealistic phase?" "We're really defined by other important figures from both our generation and the generations that came before us. For example, Georgie O'Keefe, Louise Bourgeois, Frida Kahlo, Francis Bacon, Mary-Kate Olsen. And to a lesser extent Ashley."
